FORMER PRESIDENTS RAISE $31 MILLION FOR HURRICANE RELIEF: All five living former presidents got together Saturday night (October 21st) to raise relief money for the victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, with more than $31 million taken in. Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama attended Deep From the Heart: The One America Appeal, a benefit concert held at the Reed Arena at Texas A&M University. President Trump also appeared via a pre-taped video message in which he thanked his predecessors and said, "This wonderful effort reminds us that we truly are one nation under God, all unified by our values and our devotion to one another." All the former presidents except for George H.W. Bush spoke briefly to the crowd. The concert was hosted by country performer Lee Greenwood and featured several country and rock performers, including Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keen, Sam Moore and Yolanda Adams. Lady Gaga also made a surprise appearance. The money raised from the appeal will be given to various charity and relief organizations in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
